Echeveria or as they’re commonly known as ‘Hens & Chicks’, are a group of neat, compact rosette-forming plants looking especially attractive in pots or hanging baskets. The overlapping leaves may be green, blue to grey, or silver, many with pink flushes. Flowers are held on tall stems high above the foliage and are bell-shaped, mostly red, yellow or orange and flower during late winter to summer. Echeverias multiply rapidly and grow easily from cuttings.
Full sun to bright indirect light and will tolerate light frosts if kept dry.
Regular watering during hot, dry weather, allowing the soil to dry out between watering, keep more dry in winter.
Well drained soil
Suitable for all climatic zones. All year round.
